The Jets are winners on the field right now, with a 2-1 start to the young season showing promise. But historically their woes have made them a laughingstock, and GQ magazine has taken notice, naming them the sixth-worst franchise in professional sports.

“Every Cleveland Sports Franchise” is ranked No. 1 by the magazine, and the Detroit Lions are ranked No. 2. The Lions and Jets are the only NFL teams ranked in GQ’s Top 10 list.

The list is defined by GQ as franchises that “suck.” The reason for the Jets inclusion on the list, according to GQ:

“Mark Sanchez’s ‘butt fumble’ on Thanksgiving Day last year was no anomaly for the Jets — it was a metaphor for their special breed of creative destruction, a multi-decade roll of suck interrupted only by their shock/blip Super Bowl III upset win over the Baltimore Colts. And while we’re at it, may we nominate an alternative possibility for Lowest Jets Moment of Them All? In 2000, after three years as Bill Parcells’ defensive coordinator, Bill Belichick was promoted to head coach, and in his desperate haste to back out of the job, he scribbled a note on a napkin just before his introductory press conference: ‘I resign as HC of the NYJ.’ LOL.”

Sanchez was actually on the cover of GQ in September 2011.
